The Sasaki Foundation announced today its 2018 Design Award Winners. If you’ve somehow missed all the buzz around them, the Design Awards are an annual competition held by the Sasaki Foundation to showcase projects that support and drive interdisciplinary innovation and empower our local communities. The winning teams are awarded $15,000 each, and are provided office space in the Incubator at Sasaki.
The projects this year focused on global challenges, with a local emphasis, including: Proactive Approaches to Climate Adaptation, New Models for Housing, Innovation in Transit & Access, and Creative Community Building. Teams were tasked with addressing these challenges within various communities in Massachusetts.
This year, the Foundation received over 140 inquiries and approximately two dozen applications from teams. The projects represented 15 organizations, 7 teams of individuals, 9 Boston communities, 2 Greater Boston cities, and 3 Gateway Cities.
“We had so much fun reading the project applications,” says Alexandra Lee, Executive Director. “The Foundation is excited to help fund innovative, creative projects and help bring local communities into the design conversation.”
